Amherst County remains unbeaten in 49-8 win over Minutemen

Liberty High School, Bedford, VA – The Amherst County Lancers brought their 2-0 record to Bedford on Friday night to take on the Liberty Minutemen in Seminole District action. After the Liberty band did a great job playing the national anthem, the Minutemen kicked off to Amherst on a night that was made for football. The Lancers wasted little time finding the end zone on their first drive. After a big kickoff return into Liberty territory, they scored three plays later, just 35 seconds into the game. It was a costly series for the Minutemen though. They gave up the score but they also lost their starting QB/DB 7, Mason Davison (Freshman), to injury on Amherst’s first play from scrimmage. The quarterback duties were handed over to Liberty’s 14 Noah Crumpacker for the duration of the game. The Minutemen had to adjust on the fly – as if facing the fast and talented Lancer team was not enough. The Amherst offense and defense was clicking on all cylinders in the first half, scoring on 5 of their 6 offensive possessions and holding the Minutemen to 46 total yards. The visitors led 36-0 at the half. Liberty fought the half, but in the end Amherst County picked up the win and remained perfect on the year with a 49-8 victory. “I challenged our kids to play the whole game,” Amherst’s Coach Christmas commented afterwards, “and I thought we did…we played a lot of young kids and they (Liberty) got a score on us but those kids got some valuable experience and they played hard.”
